Programme Overview

The department of chemistry offers two programs of study leading to either a science degree in chemistry or with concentration in food chemistry and nutrition (M.Sc.). The M.Sc. in chemistry prepares students for a career in chemistry or related fields through the development of a firm foundation in the fundamental science and applications of chemistry. The specialization degree program is designed to provide students with a broad background in nutrition, food service management, development of necessary analytical skills; and exposure to current nutrition, food service and hospitality management research.

Curriculum

The program of study is planned with the faculty advisor, and should include 9 credit hours of core courses, 12 credit hours chosen from the specialization courses, and 3 credit hours of electives.

Students not opting for the Food Chemistry & Nutrition Concentration can fulfill the 12 credits of the concentration requirements with any chemistry 5000 or 6000 level courses. With the consent of the program director, one 5000 or 6000 level course in another science or engineering discipline can be taken and counted towards the concentration requirements.

Admission Requirements

A Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry or a related discipline with a minimum GPA of 3.0 out of 4.0, is required for admission into the Chemistry master of science program. Admission is also subject to the general university requirements for the graduate program. For those students whose grade records indicate promising ability, but who otherwise did not have an adequate preparation in chemistry, admission may be granted under the requirement that remedial courses will be taken.

Note:
1. Late submission of admission credentials decreases your chances of declaring science and engineering majors because places in these programs are limited.
2. Check that you have fulfilled all the University’s language requirements, as demonstrated by your TOEFL/IELTS scores.
– Results of the TOEFL/IELTS exams may be sent directly to the admissions office. AUC’s code number is 0903
